Helping Students on a Path to a Rewarding Career
Elroy started his Engineering career at Selkirk College and then returned to the region to work once he completed his education. As a registered professional engineer in the Province of British Columbia for over 25 years, he's practiced engineering extensively in the Kootenays, first for Cominco, now Teck Metals and then West Kootenay Power, now FortisBC. In 2003, Elroy started his own company called Jetson Consulting Engineers Ltd. As an instructor at Selkirk College, he enjoys helping students along a similar path. He finds it enormously satisfying to see these students return to the Kootenays as practicing engineers in the local industry.
In his time away from teaching, Elroy enjoys all the activities the Kootenays have to offer, such as golfing, hiking, skiing and of course spending time on the trails and the water in the summer.
